Pack the Pews


Food donation amount as of 3.29.18: 19,546 lbs.

We have reached our 15,000 pound goal! Remember to wear your wacky hat (or hair) on April 7 - 8 to worship along with the pastors!

As part of the Year of Send, we will be having an all congregation food drive from Ash Wednesday to Easter this year, with a Pack the Pews display in the narthex. This is in conjunction with the Minnesota FoodShare campaign. The campaign envisions a Minnesota where all residents have access to healthy food and no one struggles with food insecurity.

Our goal is to collect 15,000 lbs. of non-perishable food for our food shelf during Lent.

If we as a church can reach this goal, we will have a wacky hat weekend on April 7 - 8. The entire congregation is invited to wear their wacky hats (or hair) along with the pastors. Let’s celebrate making this goal!

Since we are now a Super Shelf and are trying to offer healthier choices, please consider this when purchasing  items for the food shelf. All varieties of food donations are being requested this month. For a list of most needed items, please visit our website at sotv.org/foodshelf.

Please place all food donations in the narthex by the Pack the Pews display.
